Moderating the High of Hypertension

December 7, 2019 Category :Healthy Advocacy 0

Diabetes and hypertension (commonly known as high blood pressure), are interrelated diseases. They frequently occur together in the same patient.

It is estimated that the prevalence of arterial hypertension in type 2 diabetes patients is within the 40-50% range. In type 1 diabetes, hypertension may signal kidney disorder. Hypertension also raises the risk of stroke, heart disease, eye, nerve, and kidney damage in diabetes patients. High blood pressure, therefore, makes diabetes more complicated to manage and vice versa.

Chef Carlo Miguel – A Bigger Man

October 15, 2019 Category :People and Places 0

It was a couple of hours away before the restaurant opened. As I ran a bit late, the chef who just guested in Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition and has made a name for himself was already by the bar standing. I came in very anxious and excited at the same time while he talked to the restaurant’s marketing officer. They wrapped up their conversation, and we introduced ourselves to each other. For a moment, there was an awkward silence. I just couldn’t utter a thing when in the back of my head all I could think of was how much he’d changed—very far from the pictures I saw online. It wasn’t just the weight loss. There was something else I could hardly point a finger to.

This inflammation makes the airways smaller, which makes it more difficult for air to move in and out of the lungs. Asthma is the most common serious disease among children and a growing problem in adults.

Nuts can Halt Type 2 Diabetes

October 6, 2019 Category :Diabetes Research 0

Controlling diabetes and preventing its complications could be helped significantly by eating nuts every day.

According to a study conducted by D. Jenkins et al., consuming two ounces of nuts daily as a replacement for carbohydrates is an effective lipid and glycemic control method for persons with Type 2 diabetes. “Mixed, unsalted, raw, or dry-roasted nuts have benefits for both blood glucose control and blood lipids and may be used as part of a strategy to improve diabetes control without weight gain,” said Jenkins, who led the research team from St. Michael’s Hospital and the University of Toronto.
